Itâ€™s official: I am sick. Groggy, rundown, foggy headed. Sick, sick, sick. Hopefully this is an epic 24-hour bug, and I will wake up feeling better than ever tomorrow. 🙂
Unfortunately, this illness has struck at a bad time because I was scheduled to run 6.0 miles today and tomorrow is suppose to be my last long run for my upcoming marathon (just 16 more days!). I typically refuse to run when Iâ€™m feeling ill because I know itâ€™s so bad for my immune systemâ€¦ plus, it just seems to extend the length of the cold.
My game plan? Rest today, and rest tomorrow (unless I wake up feeling significantly better, which could happen). Hopefully, Iâ€™ll be able to make my long run up this weekend.
The Husband forced me to drink this cocktail, promising me that Iâ€™ll wake up feeling â€œperfectâ€ tomorrow.
In the mix:
- Lemon, Ginger, and Echinacea juice from Trader Joeâ€™s
- Goji berry juice
- A tablespoon of minced garlic
It was disgusting.
In other news, Girls on the Run was so much fun today. :) I got to spend more time than usual running with the girls, which is a good thing because they tend to run faster with a coach. We ended up doing 2.0 miles together (which I am totally going to count towards marathon training, thankyouverymuch).
But the run with the girls really drove home the fact that I do NOT feel good. 🙁

And asparagus spears!
Iâ€™m currently sitting on the couch, eating chocolates and nursing myself back to health. Weâ€™ll see how it goes. Luckily, my immune system usually bounces back quickly!
